Thanks for your prompt reply..... Thing is we don't have a list of names to compare against... Im more looking to search through a field and Alteryx to say that "This looks like a persons name" ... is this possible??
The attached workflow uses the .csv from this public Baby Names dataset. The workflow is based on the Sample available right within Alteryx: I just swapped in the baby names dataset and tweaked accordingly; (e.g. match name instead of company name). The idea here is it looks at your own dataset and finds things that don't match well with other items in your own data. You could, for instance, use this idea to curate your own list of approved names (from your own dataset, not the baby names, though that might actually work), and then just deal with the outliers as they arise.
